Oh right, I can actually get games straight from eShop now. Since I live overseas, I just might do that.

Damn, I'll be back at school when the demo lands, and campus internet doesn't like me connecting the 3DS for some reason. Oh well, not that much longer until the release anyway.

I'm going to wear that demo out.

I have the game preordered and it is one of my favorite series but I probably won't play the demo.

I wanna go preorder it. Looks awesome. I never played Fire Emblem but I do own a copy for the Wii because I saw it for sale used cheap.

I want to be excited, but two things are holding me back.

  1. It is a continuation of past stories (I have not played) right?
  2. Is there anything you do besides battle?

So glad I moved off campus this year.

I already pre-ordered a copy, but I'll give the demo a play just in case.

I'm really on the edge about this game, I'm not sure how much I'll like it. I'm not that great at strategy type stuff, but it does look really cool. Pre-orders get an art book or something right? From what I've seen of the games art that could be a pretty cool add on.

After reading this preview I was pushed yet again to consider it. Maybe this demo will let me know if its my thing or not.

I'm on the same boat as you. I've only played one Fire Emblem game, but it was only for a short period of time. I have been on the lookout for a solid, lengthy RPG, and it came between this or Ni No Kuni. My payday forces me to only choose one.

Only for the US. :(

Ive never played a Fire Emblem myself suprisingly as I do like turn based strategy games. Was a huge fan of Shining Force and Advanced Wars, so I know Im going to like this. Cant wait for the demo to give it a try.

basic fire emblem structure is story, battle, story, repeat. this one seems to have some overworld thingy like the final fantasy tactics games, apparently. as for story, pretty sure it's a standalone thing, as are most fire emblem games. i mean, apparently it's from the same universe marth comes from, but the games with marth have a pretty bland, passable story anyway, and i doubt they'd delve into much detail about that without providing some good insight to newcomers.

1: Usually only two games take place in the same world and you never need to play the other one to understand the plot.

2: Unless they really changed anything about the series then no. Fight, buy supplies, watch dialouge/cutscenes during and after battle. There shouldn't be any walking around or exploring or anything like in Shining Force.

i hope it has the option for training sidequests like in sacred stones. I've only played the two english gba titles, and without the option to train, it makes deciding on who to level up during real battles a pain :P

yeah, the exp micromanaging is kind of annoying in a way.
